The various MOD services haven’t exactly hit the ground running in 2014, with only a handful of new releases trickling out each week.

Since the Warner Archive Collection introduced the concept of Manufactured On Demand DVDs, I’ve written a number of times about my enthusiasm for the format. As a longtime champion of forgotten and obscure movies with my JET’s Most Wanted project, I immediately recognized that MOD was the best way for many of these movies with an admittedly limited appeal to finally be released on DVD. For awhile now, we’ve been trying to figure out a way to increase our coverage of MOD discs on The Bits. This column is the result of these efforts.
Every week, Burnt Offerings will take a closer look at what’s newly available from Warner Archive and other MOD programs from Sony, 20th Century Fox, MGM, and Universal. I’ll run down what’s new and take a look at what’s coming down the pike. I’ll also be digging through the Warner Archive Collection and reviewing titles I think are particularly exceptional, noteworthy or unusual. Some of these will be recent additions to the collection, others will be titles that have been available for awhile. There are over 1,500 titles available on Warner Archive alone, so it’s easy for stuff to fall through the cracks. Burnt Offerings will try to catch them.
